I am a HUGE fan of adding vegetables to breakfast.  Typically I find it much easier to add them in with savory breakfasts, not sweet ones.  That’s one of reasons I love this baked oatmeal so much.! You get the sweetness in the morning with a big punch of veggies too!

How to make zucchini baked oatmeal

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Prepare a 9″x13″ baking dish by coating with oil.
  2. In a bowl combine the oats, cinnamon, baking powder, nutmeg, sea salt, and (optional) collagen peptides.
  3. In a separate bowl mash the bananas fully.  Add the egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract.  Stir until fully combined.
  4. Add the banana mixture into the oat mixture and mix until just combined.  Fold in the zucchini and pour into the baking dish.
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until set and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.
  6. Allow cooling for 10 minutes before serving.  I love it topped with natural peanut butter and unsweetened coconut flakes!
